're in good company. it is also the to birthday of john bolton, just to balance things out carmically. coming up, we'll be talking with muslim comedian dean obeidallah. healthcare reporter jeff young and taking your calls on the arab-israeli conflict. right now, dan is counting down which means it is time to go to the hidden underground bunker to lisa ferguson and a current news update. >> good morning. we're getting word from "the associated press" this morning that an armed man has attacked the u.s. embassy in tel aviv. the man is an israeli citizen armed with a knife and an ax. luckily he did not get too far. he only lightly wounded a security guard before officers apprehended him. so far police have nothing to say about the man's motives but they do not think the attack has anything to do with politics or with the fighting between israel and gaza. secretary of state hillary clinton is on her way to israel today to work on negotiating a cease-fire between israel and hamas. up until now she's been travelling with the pres
works. meanwhile, john bolton, who was our union i wouldn't know ambassador to -- united nations ambassador, he said what he's seen so far, this is not good. >> i'll just put it this way based on my own experience in government, nobody who is truly competent reads talking points for any purpose. if you're good enough to be a senior american official, you ought to be able to use your own words. i'm not saying you make up policy. you obviously follow policy as set by the president. but the notion that you can be a cabinet level official and be given talking points that you simply parrot without further question is mind boggling. >> brian: i'll add this, if you want to know if ambassador rice is capable of being the secretary of state, you have to look at her background. stanford, great schools, right? oxford, i heard is a very good school. not a community college. so i heard that's pretty impresssive. she worked for candidates kerry and dukakis, but she was national security advisor with bill clinton, at which time bill clinton made ace hug best mistake, allowing the genocide to go
it right now, steve. that's for sure. ambassador john bolton is here, the former ambassador to the u.n., quite a roundup that steve provided for us. how do we get answers here? >> we won't get them from the administration. you saw from those political operatives that they have talking about this that their response to criticism is ad hominem arguments. they are not capable of responding. the tragedy on september 11 was a reflection of a failed obama administration world view, a view that the arab spring had brought democrat to libya in the middle-east, generally, that al qaeda is defeated and the war on terrorism is over. that's what led to the decisions well before the attack in benghazi. not to give enhanced security despite repeated requests from the people on the ground. that's why that cable that fox news came up with that katherine has reported, should have been a fire bell in the night at the state department when it came back to washington, almost four weeks before the attack. >> i have relied on the great reporting by katherine herig and jennifer grif and i know fox news in
john bolton is with us. you have the former president saying they are less so today but the u.s. military is racist, sexist and homophobic. your thoughts. >> i think you start with the english language which president clinton is said to be pretty good at. he has to be saying as you just indicated that it may be better. but still the starting point is racist, sexist and homophobic. i think that illustrates the chasm in the view in this country between president obama and his best spokesman, president clinton on the one hand and governor romney on the other. of course the united states has problems. that's inevitable when you are filled with human beings like the united states is. you start from the proposition that it's a good society we can make better or it's a bad society that only smarter and better people like obama and clinton can handle. and that i think tells a lot about the way the two candidates really view the country. megyn: the military has a history of not allowing gay soldiers to serve. then president clinton was the one who put in don't ask don't tell which has
the place, judges, republicans, who have been on hold. now when lindsey graham mentioned was john bolton and that was a clear warning because john bolton, as you know, was not confirmed for u.n. a.m. b ambassador and was a recess appointee. there's no way the president is going to nominate as secretary of state as a recess appointee. you just cannot with credibility lead diplomacy around the world. this week we'll have a debate -- tomorrow there's a debate in the general assembly of the united nations on palestinian state hood. it is symbolic but now france is going along with the rest of the general assembly. the united states and israel and a few others will stand alone against this symbolic gesture. it's considered a very important move by the weakened fatah branch of the palestinians after what's happened with fgaza and hamas. real things at stake here. and susan rice has to stand up there and represent the united states and there's got to be a lot of weakening of her position. >>> coming up next, "the last lion." a definitive biography on winston churchill 20 years in the making was
and administration would john bolton. we have seen it in a couple of cases in the obama administration where nominee for a high government post was held up for a long time. it all depends in the end on whether kelly ayotte gets any allies from her fellow republicans on this, because the way you could overcome her individual opposition is to get about five republicans that the democrats would need to break any filibuster that she might muster. i suspect, based on what i've seen of the evidence, what she was referring to in the statement, that it probably will not be a big problem for susan rice nonalignment. frankly, ayotte is way out on a limb on this. it is interesting that john mccain and lindsey graham, much more experienced senators, continue their opposition. but ayotte says she will hold up any nominee. host: what to you mean that she's way out there? guest: there's no one else making statements that there are so many unanswered questions that this is a sort of national scandal that must be resolved before we can even have a secretary of state to succeed hillary clinton. i think that unless th
: to be secretary of state. dana says the bolton payback theory may be part of the republican's reason for blocking her nomination. but a bigger part is that if john kerry's chosen instead they think scott brown will be able to fill his senate seat. dick says please point out that republicans have named as chairman of all of their committees that they're responsible for with all white men. no women or people of color. will they never learn? no they will never and have never learned anything! >> announcer: this is the "bill press show."
